Building Garden Retaining Wall in Place of old Flower Bed

Postby obriend6 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 3:12 pm


I had a flower bed in my back yard that had a brick retaining wall on one side, and on the other side the earth was simply set against the back yard of my neighbour. My neighbour has a concrete slab back yard.

Upon removing the flower bed, my yard is now approx 12 inches lower than my neighbours (9 inches of earth and 3 inches of his concrete slab).

I would like to build as small a retaining wall as possible (due to the minimal size of my yard). Does anyone have a recommendation?
